The U. S. IBP is trying to develop a phenology subprogram as part of the Analysis of Ecosystems Program. This paper outlines some of the important objectives of such a program, and why they are thought to be a major contribution to resource management models. It describes the logistic problems of developing an observer network capable of providing the data necessary for mapping purposes and explains the mapping procedure, using the North Carolina Phenology Project as a model. The phenological models developed from our first efforts are presented.
